Solutions for aspiring coaches

Accrediting coaches since 2013

If you’ve found us by googling ‘coaching qualification’, then you’ll have seen how confusing it can be finding the right one! Well here’s two reasons why we might be the best fit for you:

1) We offer dual accreditation. The Institute of Leadership exists to support leadership development and the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches (WABC) is the only global accrediting body that exists purely for business coaching. The vast majority of coaching programmes out there are life coaching orientated, not business coaching. While this obviously has its place, it is not what we do.

2) We don’t use trainers or academics to deliver any of our programmes. You will work with and be taught by an experienced business coach, someone who practises what they preach day in and day out, working with some of the world’s most successful and enduring brands.

Oh alright, just one more reason…

Our accredited coaching programme is deliberately staggered, so you don’t have to commit time and money to the entirety of a programme, before you have any idea what you’ll get, or whether you’ll like it!

Join us on our 2 day Foundations programme, (which according to every single one of our 3,878 graduates is exceptional…yup, every single one!) then you can decide if you’d like to continue on the journey and join us for Stage 2 Awareness, and Stage 3 Evolution.

Team Coaching

  • 2 Days
  • Face to face/virtual
  • No coursework
  • BCA accredited

In its simplest form, the job of a great team coach is to help a group of individuals better understand how to draw the best from one another, and therefore leverage the power of the group to achieve far greater results than can be achieved individually. Our two day accredited programme will teach you how.

We take a systemic approach to helping teams perform even better, incorporating a structure that can be used with any team. This helps groups first understand, and then improve their cognitive functioning (quality of thinking, problem solving and decision making) and what we call ’the glue’ - the trust, grit, zeal and perseverance that binds them all together.
